I'm Laura. I Am The Sensitive, Bookish Type.

I’m a writer, reader, mommy, wife, cook, baker, artist, dreamer, and INFP. I’ve got an MFA in fiction, a husband, two kids, a cat, two dogs, and a flock of chickens. I like to make things. I like to learn things. I like to try and reach and explore. I am always curious. And I am horribly limited.

(And if you get that reference, I already love you. If you don’t, keep reading and we’ll work things out.)

I’m the kind of person who has a hard time sitting still, at least intellectually and emotionally; the kind of person who will say she needs something to fill her time when her life is fully scheduled, when what she actually means is something to fill her mind; the kind of person who likes semi-colons and hyphens but not ellipses, though she can see their semantic purpose.

Why “The Sensitive, Bookish Type”?

Well–it describes me. It’s also a quote from a movie: Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Holly says, “Did you ever steal anything from the five and ten? When you were a kid, I mean?” and Paul replies, “No. I’m the sensitive, bookish type.” It’s also a line from a song (referencing the line from the movie) by the very obscure band, Thee Spivies, whose album I had on repeat for most of my adolescence. You can hear a snippet of the song in the intro to my various videos (used with permission!).
